The Big Four by Agatha Christie finds Hercule Poirot and his sidekick Captain Hastings chasing after a mysterious group calling themselves The Big Four. The events of the book happen over quite some time and are short mysteries encompassing just a chapter or two each, but all relating to each other and culminating in a final wrap-up in the last chapter.
Although The Big Four was published nearly 9 decades ago, with the exception of mentions of carts and carriages, only newspapers to learn the news of the day, and a complete lack of electronic devices, the story could be set today. Hercule Poirot’s detective work has truly stood up to the test of time. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys mysteries and detectives.
